First off, warm the little guy up in some warm water..the tank can be simple. In a 10 gallon tank, put a small amount of water in, just enough so it can stretch its neck up and break the surface. Also provide shelter in the form of floating plants, or a small cave, etc. You may want to use a small aquarium heater...A snapper at this size will eat finely chopped cooked chicken and chopped feeder fish..try to find some earthworms as well. Provide a basking spot, preferably under a hiding spot ( try to include a few )..my snappers used to lay on top of the plants under the light, or just under them with their neck stretched upwards. Im sure you'll get plenty of help here, good luck.
